2017 BMW 7 Series Release Date and Review

The new 2017 BMW 7 Series aims to get its groove back with time-tested and proven powertrains, new technology galore, and standard long-wheelbase dimensions. Some of its upsides include a standard adaptive air suspension system, impeccably refined engines, more passenger space, abundant and desirable luxury features, and a lots of comfort amenities. Its release date should be expected early next year.

The 2015 BMW 7 Series was a perfect car by conventional measures, however, time isn’t a respecter for anyone let alone a car. With the segment offering more and better cars, the 7 Series had to be reinvented courtesy of BMW and ultimately gained intriguing upgrades.


Start off with, the vehicle comes with copious amounts of interior space than even the S-Class. With 126” wheelbase dimension, that’s nearly 2” more than what the S-Class offers, the vehicle offers more room for its backseat passengers. Other features that the 7 Series has gained include the camera-based predictive program which comes paired to the standard air adaptive suspension system.

Things remain unchanged under the hood, as it was arguably the strongest aspect for the 7 Series and BMW might not want to upset that status quo. However, for those who haven’t been keen to watch the latest news, BMW is planning to add to the current lineup the all-wheel-drive 740i and 750i trims by this fall. Also, in the plans is the intriguing 2017 BMW 740e Hybrid.


In regards to the cabin technology, innovation, and safety, the 7 Series can easily be ranked the class leader. However, the segment offers several bogeys that might contest that title as well. The closest one is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 2017 Jaguar XJ, 2017 Porsche Panamera, and the understated 2017 Audi A8.

New 2017 BMW Z4 – Release Date, Specs & Info

The new 2017 BMW Z4 offers a sleek combination of upscale features and stonking performance paralleled only by a handful of vehicles in its class. Some of the features that heighten its appeal include an excellent visibility, a comfortable ride quality, a quick-folding hardtop, powerful engines, ample legroom for a roadster, and stout brakes. The BMW Z4 2017 release date is open for speculation as BMW is yet to make any information available. But my crystal ball assures me it is most probable to be availed sometime before this fall as a 2017 year model.

“Why would you want your hair fussed?” – is perhaps a puzzled comment that one occasionally gets when they seem to suggest they’ve been motoring along in a convertible with the top down. Well, for those who’re well acquainted with the fun, the 2017 BMW Z4 roadster probably deserves your attention.

Once again, BMW has managed to hit the sweet spot with the Z4. It’s fun, athletic, and powerful.  Based on the engine capacity, the Z4 is available in three flavors starting with the entry-level BMW Z4 sDrive28i model that is capable of sending 240 horsepower and 260 lbs. ft. of torque to the rear wheel drive system via either the six-speed manual or the eight-speed automatic. Both systems are standard and offered at no extra cost. Upgrading to the BMW Z4 sDrive35i gets you 300 horsepower – generated from a six-cylinder turbocharged 3.0L engine. And lastly, those who opt for the Z4 sDrive35is get a 335 horsepower – generating 3.0L turbocharged six-cylinder engine.

How’s life aboard? You ask. The 2017 BMW Z4 interior is classy and stuffed with high-quality materials. Some of the unique features available include a handy cargo shelf, sun-reflective “Kansas” leather, “SensaTec” vinyl upholstery, and a two-tone color schemes. Needless to say, the Z4 interior also comes with a myriad of customization options.

On the flipside, however, the asking price is relatively substantial relative to its rivals. The trunk space is modest, and the four-cylinder is clattery when idle. In light of the above, it’d be prudent to check around the segment before making a decision. Some of the alternatives available include the Mazda MX-5 Miata – solves the pricing issue and offers a much better cargo volume. Others include the Mercedes-Benz SLK, BMW 2 Series, and Audi A3.

If you have been shopping around for a luxury crossover you’ll probably have come across the BMW X1 for 2017. This is BMW’s smallest and most affordable vehicle. The outgoing model provided a fun driving experience but in the process jeopardized its passenger space which didn’t go well with many users, of course. The redesigned X1, on the other hand, promises better and improved interior space.

This is because the new X1 is no longer based on the FWD BMW 3 Series and now shares the same platform as that of the Mini Cooper. True, it sounds a bit confusing to have both “BMW” and “FWD”. However, those skeptical about the changes shouldn’t worry a thing about the turn of things. The new architecture has lots to offer in terms of suspension upgrades and performance.

Interior wise, both leg-and shoulder room have been improved particularly in the backseat. The new X1 now offers top-of-the-range cargo volume but anyone thirsty for more space should probably opt for the larger X3 crossover. The cabin materials offered are classy even for the base model. Newer technology features are also available including but not limited to a frontal collision mitigation system, a heads-up display, pedestrian mitigation, and a hands-free power tailgate.

Of course, you will probably want to shop around in the segment before you finally give in. some of the X1 bogeys include the 2017 Lexus NX 200t, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA250, the 2017 Acura RDX, and the 2017 Audi Q3.
